Speaker Biography

Nick Pollard BSc (Psych) MBPsS FRSA has a 40 year history as a successful social entrepreneur, author and speaker. However, currently, he is probably best known as the father of Dr Elizabeth McNaught (Lizzie) who is the author of the best-selling book 'Life Hurts: a doctor's personal journey through anorexia'.

When Lizzie was very ill, Nick discovered important personal insights which built upon his professional knowledge, and became instrumental in her recovery.

He is now the director of Family Mental Wealth, a social-enterprise working in co-operation with King's College London and the University of Southampton to facilitate family-based pro-active self-care for mental health and wellbeing.
